Requesting Financial Need Levels

If you would like to consider your applicants' financial need level when determining scholarship awards, please email a list of UOIDs and names to Tina Phifer. Please allow a 2 week turn-around to process this request.

You should also encourage all of your applicants to submit their financial need to UO by the scholarship deadline. Consider using the following wording on your scholarship application, website and emails to students:

Your Financial Need Level will be considered when we make scholarship selections. Please submit your FAFSA, ORSAA or Statement of Financial Need by the scholarship deadline.

  • The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is an online application for students who are US citizens, Legal Permanent Residents (LPRs) or other eligible non-citizens.
  • The ORSAA (Oregon Student Aid Application) is an alternative to the FAFSA for Dreamer students including students who have Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status or Temporary Protected Status (TPS) as well as other undocumented students.
  • The Statement of Financial Need is a form for international students with a valid student visa and can be submitted directly to the UO Division of Global Engagement.
